UPDATE: March 27, 2020 – The Wireless Infrastructure Association (WIA), updated the status of their May 18 through 21, 2020 Connect (X) 2020 show to their exhibitors, attendees and sponsors on their web site Wednesday, as the planned dates for Connect (X) Miami approach.
“The health and safety of each of you is our top priority. Like all of you, we are acutely focused on the developments and recommendations issued by federal and state health agencies, including the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC),” WIA said in a statement.
“Recent CDC guidance regarding mass gatherings recommends the cancellation or postponement of events with 50 or more people over the next eight weeks. Given that Connect (X) falls outside the current timeline, we will continue to evaluate the best course of action as the situation progresses and will maintain regular communication with you.”
“No matter what happens, we are exploring innovative ways to bring our community together and prepare for the buildout of 5G. The importance of 5G is clearer now than ever in these trying times. WIA seeks to continue to fill our role of providing you with the educational content you need and bringing our wireless community together as best we can.”
